This is one of my favorites. I love the raspberry flavor, and it has just the right amount of sweetness!

This was served at our family Christmas and it was a hit. The hint of sweetness in this sparkling wine was great.

A fun, festive treat: especially if you enjoy Kir Royale. Not too sweet, nice dry finish.

Four glasses



Tasting Notes:

The grapes for our sparkling wines are picked early on, at 19/20 brix, to keep them naturally lower in sugar and more crisp with a higher acid level. Imperial Kir is based on the ‘Kir Imperiale’, a drink first made popular in the late 1800’s, and still enjoyed today. Our crisp, dry sparkling wine gets a touch of natural raspberry that adds a semi-sweetness to the wine. The color is light, almost translucent, with a hint of pink. The taste is yeasty, crisp and mildly acidic, with the flavor of juicy ripe raspberries and a hint of melon.
